  1. Thanks for the clarification. That said, it doesn't make a difference about the finer points of their pay for use programs. I don't necessarily hold it against them for that, and in turn, I'm sure they don't hold it against me for not wanting to play in that sandbox. In truth, I would have considered paying, had it not been for the "deer in the headlights" reaction to searching within a note... (shrug)
  2. The fact that the Evernote team even ASKED why this would be a useful feature tells me that they are clueless. Yes, this program has a lot of features and for a while, was a pretty cool idea. I'll give it to the program managers not to have considered "search within a page" for the first few iterations. But for the love of all things holy, once it was pointed out, a light bulb should have gone off and they should have slapped their foreheads at what an oversight this was. You can search within Excel, PDF's, etc... why in the SAM HELL would this be such a strange feature to the programming team and the product manager???? Hey, hard to implement? Okay, you get a break for programming challenges; but to ask why this would be useful is like saying why use rubber tires on a car. Anyone who does that "half full" *****, get over it - we are 16 years into the new millennium. WordStar (a word processor application that had a dominant market share during the early- to mid-1980s) had a "find within page" feature - hell, even in DOS you could search within the content of files. So, now that Evernote have put me on a clock to upgrade to premium or lose all my access for all but two devices, I have finally and successfully converted everything to Microsoft OneNote. I'm golden. Oh and to that super user who haunts the forums and tells me that these bugs are "part of the rich tapestry of life", I hope you can focus on the mistletoe hanging from my back pocket as I leave...
  3. I am beside myself with amazement that "how would you use this feature" would even be a legitimate question - seriously. It's great to search for a word in Windows Explorer for example, and come up with all the files that have that word in it, but would it really be helpful if, upon opening that file, you couldn't search for the word? That's almost like the guy who said why do we need telephone lines when we can write a letter. The uses for this feature are built into almost any application in computing today. Search within a document. For as innovative as Evernote seems, I just can't get my arms around why this question is being asked...and answered.
  4. The routing conduit helps - thanks for that. I was unsure if the sync was a direct wireless event between my internal network and my phone or not. If I understand you correctly, the web is the go between - always. That means if I enter a note in the desktop app, it goes to the web before reaching my phone, and vice versa. It IS odd behavior, to be sure. Knowing that it is a unique report is helpful however. I had stopped adding notes until there was some clarity on the event, so now I will begin using it more and see what happens. Time will tell I suppose. Thank you for your time and suggestions. Peace,
  5. LOL, you can't be serious - rich tapestry? Look, I appreciate the reply, truly - but of course I sync'ed. And yes, I looked in other notebooks, but I fear you may have missed the point. Evernote shows that there are 26 notes in the notebook, yet when you count them, there are only 25. That's not a trivial issue. I've posted the screen shot. If the note were in another folder, I would be able to search all notes for it, yet, I cannot. That note shows up in the Web App, and on my phone, but not on the desktop app - and all three show the same tally of notes for every folder. (wonders: why am I repeating myself?) I'm awful grateful you replied, but I wouldn't post to the forum if I hadn't turned the power on. There are only 25 notes showing up, and the notebook tally says there are 25. What gives? If I can't post a note from my phone and have it show up in the desktop, I'm not entirely convinced that it's a reason not to be concerned or a minor glitch. Especially when Evernote is showing the incorrect number of notes in the folder (shrug).
  6. I am new to Evernote, but certainly not new to software - I still remember when turning on a computer left you at the A:\> prompt. I put a note in my Android (HTC One M8) Evernote app, and sync'ed. The note showed up in the web application of Evernote, but it did not show up in the Desktop, and, of course, it's in my phone. YET - the desktop application is showing exactly the same number of entries for that particular notebook (and total number of notes in all) in all three applications (Web, Desktop, phone). I have taken a screen shot of the Desktop application and it shows that the folder in question has 26 entries, but when you physically count them, there are only 25. This frightens me since the Desktop application is clearly not reflecting what is in the Web App, nor the phone App, AND, it's mis-reporting the number of total notes, putting reliablility in question. Since I'm new to Evernote, I can't eliminate the possibility that I'm doing something wrong, or the note is somehow hidden in the Desktop application - hence the title of this post. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
